Emerging Life Phases
Futurist Sonia Arrison Talks About the Effects of People Living Longer

By: Rebecca Byers (Star) Mar 21, 12

Futurist and policy analyst Sonia Arrison has been studying the effects of new technologies on human life for over a decade. Sonia Arrison is the author of ‘100 Plus: How the Coming Age of Longevity Will Change Everything, From Careers and Relationships to Family and Faith,’ which elaborates on the impending “longevity revolution” and the accepted notion that the first person to live to 150 has likely already been born.

In this short but captivating talk, Sonia Arrison discusses the implications of a longer life cycle on everything, but it will specifically invoke a need to name the new, emerging life stages, such as “adultlescence,” the period after adolescence but before adulthood that many millennials are finding themselves in now.
